You Can Help Cross Off Hunger #BetterTogether #Cbias


We moved out to the farm on September 15th 2011.  My kids have all grown and for the most part moved out and went onto college, living adult lives.  I have been a huge gardener and wanted more for myself and my passion.  My goal was to live a life of sustainability.  I wanted chickens for the eggs, goats and cows for their milk and meat.  I have shared my garden with our local pantries to help people in the community and I cannot tell you the feeling I get.  Not sure how to get started with Sustainable living Plan?  Check out this informative link on Sustainable living.

As a child we moved around a lot.  Many times we were living in a new place without furniture but I never went hungry.  My dad and mom always kept us well fed and clothed.  As a mother and wife I can say I have been horribly blessed.  My husband has always had a job that has blessed him.  We have given to food shelves and back when the kids were young have gone to them to help us over a hump.

“Unilever is committed to donating more than two million meals to families in need with Feeding America and every item on your shopping list counts. Show your support by adding Unilever brands to your cart next time you shop. Together we can help to Cross Off Hunger. 

 “ Feeding America is the nation’s leading domestic hunger-relief charity. Its mission is “to feed America's hungry through a nationwide network of member food banks and engage our country in the fight to end hunger.” Visit to learn more. 

Here are a few thought provoking questions, do you know what the top ten most needed food items  needed today in a food bank?  Do you know the top ten facts about hunger in America?  Test your knowledge.

 Look what I found simply by looking in my bathroom, I am already using the brands!
How are you living a sustainable life?  
  • We put it all into the compost bin
  • We use natural fertilizers from the chickens and rabbits to better our soil.
  • We utilize a rain barrel.
  • Obvious things like washing in cold water, turning the faucet off when we brush out teeth are   sometimes forgotten.Unilver

Unilever is Making Life Better for millions who need it. I want to clarify that you don’t have to purchase Unilever products to help in the cause! You probably already by their brands! Like Ragu®, Suave®, Skippy®,Dove®, Bertolli® just to name a few.  Look at hat I found in my bathroom, I am already purchasing these products because I love them.

 Are you wondering how you can donate?  Clean out the cupboards with items your not eating get a box together and clean out the bathroom that is overloaded with soaps and shampoos.  Your top items that the Food Banks are in need of.

  1. Non Perishable Grains
  2. Spreads
  3.  Instant Meals 
  4.  Soups
  5. Canned Fruits 
  6. Canned Proteins 
So how am I helping? I am going to be heading out for another holiday shopping trip which means lots of food and toiletries.  I am dedicated to finding the Unilever brands and adding them to my cart to donate. This is a call to action! Do you know where your local Food Bank is? Are you ready to Cross Off Hunger ?
Watch for my post next week donating to our local food pantry.
